Product Review

The Cisco N9K-C93128TX switch offers a high density of 100M/1/10G-T ports, totaling 96, and supports up to 8 QSFP ports with 40G speed, catering effectively to diverse network demands. However, its maximum operating temperature of 40 °C could limit deployment in environments with higher ambient temperatures, potentially affecting reliability. Its extensive support for up to 128,000 LPM routes, 208,000 IP host entries, and 96,000 MAC address entries, alongside a broad range of VLAN, VRF, and multicast capabilities, makes it highly versatile for complex network architectures.


The Cisco N9K-C93128TX is a versatile and high-capacity network switch designed for efficient data center operations. It is part of Cisco's Nexus 9000 Series, offering enhanced port density and scalability suited for both traditional and next-generation data center architectures. This product overview focuses on the hardware specifications that underline its performance capabilities. Central to its design, the N9K-C93128TX boasts 96 100M/1/10G-T ports, providing ample connectivity for a wide range of devices and network speeds. This feature ensures that the switch can handle the diverse requirements of modern data centers, from high-speed storage networks to management and out-of-band networks. Additionally, the switch is equipped with eight QSFP ports, each capable of 40G speeds, which are essential for creating high-bandwidth uplinks to spine switches or for interconnecting data center pods efficiently. The hardware's capacity is further highlighted by its support for a maximum of 128,000 Longest Prefix Match (LPM) routes, 208,000 IP host entries, and 96,000 MAC address entries. Such capacities ensure that the switch can manage large-scale deployments without compromising on performance or reliability. The support for 32,000 multicast routes and an equal number of IGMP snooping groups enhances its suitability for applications requiring efficient multicast distribution, such as video streaming or financial trading applications.
  • Maximum VLANs supported: 4096
  • Maximum Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances: 1000
  • Maximum PortChannels: 528
Support for up to 4096 VLANs allows for extensive network segmentation, critical for security and traffic management in complex environments. With up to 1000 VRF instances, the switch can isolate and manage multiple virtual networks, enabling service providers and large enterprises to deliver distinct and secure services over a shared infrastructure. The ability to configure up to 528 PortChannels enhances link aggregation capabilities, ensuring higher throughput and redundancy. The N9K-C93128TX is designed to operate within a broad range of environmental conditions. It can function at temperatures from 0 °C to 40 °C and is built to withstand storage temperatures from -40 °C to 70 °C. With a humidity tolerance of 5% to 95% (noncondensing) and an operational altitude of up to 13,123 ft, the switch is robust across various data center locations and conditions. Its weight of 32.56 lbs, without fans, power supplies, and uplink modules, makes it manageable in terms of installation and relocation. In terms of network design flexibility, the switch supports up to 32 links in a PortChannel and 64 Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP) paths, facilitating efficient load balancing and redundancy. Network monitoring and troubleshooting are enhanced with the capability to run four active SPAN sessions. In summary, the Cisco N9K-C93128TX stands out for its high port density, scalability, and robustness, making it well-suited for modern data center needs. Its extensive feature set ensures that it can support a wide range of applications, from high-performance computing to cloud services, while providing the reliability and efficiency expected from Cisco's networking solutions.
